Cristiano Ronaldo will clock 36 in about three weeks from now but the forward is not showing any sign of slowing down one bit.
The Portugal international scored a stunning 92nd-minute goal in Juventus' 3-1 win over Sassuolo at the Allianz Stadium last weekend.
Danillo and Aaron Ramsey had also been on target earlier on in the game that saw all goals scored in the second half.
The victory helped Andrea Pirlo's men to close the gap on leaders AC Milan in their pursuit of another Scudetto crown.
Meanwhile, Ronaldo's effort in the game took his tally in the Italian topflight to 15 goals and two assists so far this season.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar became the only player to score at least 15 goals in each of the last 15 seasons in the top five leagues after his late minute strike against Roberto De Zerbi's men. Ronaldo has reached that mark in every campaign since 06-07.
The five-time Ballon d'Or winner also has four Champions League goals in four appearances at the group stage having missed the remaining two over COVID-19 related issues.
Meanwhile, the duo of Weston McKennie and Paulo Dybala was forced out of the game due to injury, yet, the Old Lady were able to take the lead through a Danilo strike.
However, Gregoire Defrel scored an equaliser but his goal only ended up a mere consolation for the visitors who ended the game with 10 men as Pedro Obiang got sent off just before halftime
